    I downloaded this app called wire tap its a anti spy app. Everytime a certain person calls my phone or I call someone, a red alert sounds and flashed your called is being recorded by LG android.

    So please someone help me understand why my own phone is recording my calls. I have not requested this. HELP!!!!!!!

    Delete the app? Sounds like it's doing what you'd expect an app called wire tap to do.

    I'm not familiar with that app, but I think it's unlikely the phone is actually recording the call. My guess is that app is picking up on other apps that have permission to monitor calls. This is a legit permission many apps use. This way, when they notice an incoming or outgoing call, they can set themselves dormant and such and not interfere with the call.
    ManiacJoe and tamaica7 like this.

    Thank you very much for helping to understand
